by Melissa and James in Norwich, England, United Kingdom

Three days to go!

Hi everyone!

Thanks so much to everyone who has donated and supported I'll Show You Mine. It means the absolute world! We're at just over £1000 and still have tickets to sell, which has just beaten our wildest expectations. You're the best :)

For the final straight, we'd love to get as many bums on seats as possible and help make I'll Show You Mine a continuing enterprise that keeps this conversation alive beyond the symposium.

We've added Lucy-Anne Holmes to the line-up, which is mega exciting - Lucy-Anne founded the successful No More Page 3 campaign and wrote a memoir about her sexual discovery called Don't Hold My Head Down. Read an interview with Lucy here - https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2019/may/18/i-wanted-to-really-explore-my-own-pleasure-how-i-rebooted-my-sex-life

We also have a few spots left in our writing seminars. If you've purchased a day ticket and would like to upgrade, get in touch - £7 more gets you an hour and a half with one of our amazing writers to discuss, do writing exercises and go under the hood :)

We'd appreciate shares, likes, tweets, FB posts, and all your love! Invite your friends, bring your partner, and let's have an amazing symposium :)

We've also extended the Crowdfunder an additional three days. Nothing's wrong - everything is going ahead and we're full steam ahead, we'd just like to give folks an opportunity to buy tickets on the day and support the future of I'll Show You Mine :)

Thank you thank you. Can't wait to see you at Dragon Hall on June 6th :)

James and Melissa
